Code of Conduct


Recognise the culture and spiritual attachment Aboriginal people have to their land and water.

  • Respect Aboriginal cultural ceremonies. This may mean that a particular area is temporarily closed to access.
  • Be courteous to other water users and those who belong to the local Aboriginal community.
  • Do not land ashore without first obtaining a separate Aboriginal land permit, from the Northern Land Council.

Respect Sacred Sites

  • Do not enter any part of the waters containing identified sacred sites unless specifically permitted to do so by the Northern Land Council.
  • Take care when boating to avoid damaging sensitive areas.

Take no more than our immediate needs

  • Carefully return excess or unwanted fish into the water using best practice catch and release methods.

Understand and observe all fishing and regulations and report illegal fishing activities

  • Keep up-to-date with regulations and observe them. They are based on the best available scientific evidence.

Prevent pollution and protect wildlife by removing rubbish

  • Rubbish must be disposed of correctly to avoid potentially entrapping birds and other aquatic creatures.
